A confident Diski side defeated Chippa United 6-1 in their first Shield game this morning at Princess Magogo Stadium.

Showing confidence from the first minute, the side scored off an early corner which they took short, then played back into the box. Mfanafuthi Mkhize made sure of his mark and gave the team an early lead. Just four minutes later, Khwela and Maphumulo took the opportunity to go on a counter attack from a midfield interception. Maphumulo layed off to Khwela on his left and Jaftha had no chance in making a save.

The lead boosted confidence on the field and the Diski boys attacked the Chippa goals at will. They received little resistance from the visiting defenders and Conco began his scoring spree.

Twenty six minutes in he opened his account, taking the lead up to three goals. Just before the break, Chippa were awarded a goal after a mix up in defence gave Tofile an opportunity to gain a bit of momentum for the visitors.

The celebration was short lived for them as Conco slotted his brace just 3 minutes later.

Returning from the break, the visitors looked a little more confident, but still lost possession too often and allowed us to attack from all angles.

Conco was then lucky enough to score his hat-trick and then fourth goal in the 79th and 89th minute of the game.

Chippa United did have a couple of chances, with Maarman coming up strong on the attack, however Mlungwana made a great save on the one attempt and his other just lacked enough punch to make any definite threat.

A fantastic team effort from the youngsters today and a confident start to the Shield competition for them this season.A confident Diski side saw off Chippa United 6-1 in their first Shield game this morning at Princess Magogo Stadium.
